Natalie Wood’s sister pleads for Robert Wagner to ‘tell the truth once and for all’ about the star’s death
Put together a beautiful women, two guys with bad tempers Robert Wagner and Christopher Walken, a boat in the middle of nowhere, a full moon, plenty of booze and a stash of drugs. What do we have, BUTT a perfect recipe for disaster.
It is widely believed that Natalie’s death was no accident. Just how it happened has been a mystery for decades.
During the making of the film Brainstorm, Wood drowned while on a weekend boat trip to Santa Catalina Island on board the Splendour. Many of the circumstances surrounding her drowning are unknown; it was never determined how she entered the water. She was with her husband Robert Wagner, Brainstorm co-star Christopher Walken, and the Splendour‘s captain, Dennis Davern, on the evening of November 28, 1981. Wood’s body was recovered by authorities at 8:00 a.m. on November 29, one mile away from the boat, with a small inflatable dinghy, named the Valiant, found beached nearby. According to Wagner, when he went to bed, Wood was not there. The autopsy report revealed that Wood had bruises on her body and arms as well as an abrasion on her left cheek.
Later, in his memoir Pieces of My Heart, Wagner acknowledged that he had an argument with Wood before she disappeared. The autopsy found that Wood’s blood alcohol content was 0.14%, and there were traces of two types of medication in her bloodstream: a motion-sickness pill and a painkiller, both of which increase the effects of alcohol. Following his investigation, Los Angeles County coroner Thomas Noguchi ruled her death an accident by drowning and hypothermia. According to Noguchi, Wood had been drinking and she may have slipped while trying to re-board the dinghy.
There are too many suspicious and unanswered details surrounding her death to be ignored. The incident happened back in the good old days when the law did not come down on the celebs, for the most part, as it does today. AXE Teddy Kennedy. Depending on who the person was, how much $oldi they were worth, who their Daddy was, all had a direct impact on what kind of justice, if any, their victims would receive.
I say it is a shame that such a beautiful lady, with her entire career ahead of her, had to wind up dead and her killer/killers are still Walken around free.
It was suspected that Natale and Walken had a thing going on and Bobby was very pissed over it. An argument ensued on the boat, Natale got nailed by one of the two men or maybe both and was thrown overboard.
Both men must have taken the oath of Omerta for fear of losing everything they had. As of yet, neither one of them have come clean or held accountable for Natalie’s death. BUTT we can be assured of one thing, they know exactly what happened.
We do not know the exact details, BUTT we do know there was some sort of fight between Natalie and Wagner and the next thing we know, Natalie wind up dead in the drink.
It would be nice to get to the bottom of what really happened for her family and to bring the perpetrator/perpetrators to justice.
Put together a beautiful women, Robert Wagner and Christopher Walken, a boat, a full moon, plenty of booze and a stash of drugs. What do we have, BUTT a recipe for disaster.
We all know how skuttlebutt (Marine Corps term for gossip) starts. I don’t know how true it is, BUTT I hear through the twisted grape vine, the democrats are trying their best to pin this one on PDT.
As the world turns.
